Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A movie of unexpected pleasures.
Fresh: While there are several mile-wide plot holes and one key under-developed main character, the film emerges as a tight, intriguing old-fashioned drama that gives audiences a hero worth rooting for.
Rotten: The failure of director-writer Peter Hyams to put any weight whatever behind the moral issues (crude as they are) makes this merely violent nonsense.
Rotten: Because both dialogue and direction are none too exciting, one's tired eyes wander endlessly over the space base sets.
I won't go into details but I will say that this is a good, tense Sci-Fi movie. Well done for its time. The basic premis is "High Noon" in outer space. (Nuff Said)
Outland is from 1981, not 1997
This is a decent sci-fi movie from the era of Alien and Blade Runner. The iTunes store says it is from 1997. This is a mistake. Rent it if you want to see an overlooked classic sci-fi thriller. It's not the best script ever, but you do get some prime Sean Connery in the deal.
A 1980's Classic and A good one !
